: good news today out of pennsylvania. the judge has blocked the state's tough voter i.d. law meaning it will not go into effect this election. >> we've come like moses today not to say let my people go but we've come today to say let my people vote. >> jennifer: let my people vote. you'll remember this was the law that would have disenfranchised as many as 750,000 people in pennsylvania. mostly young people and minorities and a top republican lawmaker had boasted in june that it would give the state to mitt romney. pennsylvania's actually part of a wider trend. measures to restrict voting are being stymied in courts in wisconsin, texas florida arizona, south carolina, and ohio. stymied by the court system. but the not so good news is that these laws are not going away. the pennsylvania law has just been suspended not struck down and other state courts are likely going to consider similar restrictions. pennsylvania is not even seen as a swing state anymore. the president now leads by 8 points according to an a
people and informing them about changes in voting laws while allies of ours are fighting voter suppression laws in the courts in states across the nation. >> jennifer: right. we're going to talk about that in one second. true the vote of course for ow viewers is an entity that's been supported by a lot of the right wing organizations that we have fought on this show, including the koch brothers and others funded by some of the entities that want to limit access to the ballot by voters they think are not favorable to republicans. the national urban league policy institute has actually found that african-american voters in a number of key states hold the key to the outcome of the 2012 election. tell us about that. >> governor, we achieved, as a nation, something remarkable in 2008. we achieved turnout parity meaning whites and african-americans turned out at the very same percentage level. a flippage in that turnout parity, if you will, a lower african-american turnout in states like ohio, virginia, and the state of
of states like in wisconsin and probably in pennsylvania you're having voter i.d. laws which is probably one of the most common form of voter suppression put in place. then the courts are blocking it. in south carolina, in texas doj has been blocking a lot of the efforts and so there is a sort of like two steps backwards one step forward process going on here. where a lot of states are trying to make voting laws worse but we're seeing a pushback from the courts and the department of justice. >> bill: okay. but it has been -- over 20 where there have been attempts, right? >> that's right. they're very calm and they take very different forms. >> bill: i was going to get to that. let's talk about some of the forms. what is the most common form? voter i.d.? >> probably the most common is voter i.d. this is a kind of bait and switch. the way that voter i.d. works is it is sort of intuitive to people that you should show i.d. to prove you are who you are at the polls. people are worried about voter fraud. a lot o
.s.a. action, a super pac supporting the obama campaign. federal lecture laws give the white house an advantage in the spending wars. "the washington post" reports while the president's campaign controls most of his funds, much of romney's cash is actually being held by a g.o.p. committees and other interest groups because candidates enjoyed discounted rates for tv ads the post says, the white house was paying just $125 to run one ad in ohio compared to $900 charged to a pro romney super pac for the same slot. romney insists he's going to win in november and made his pitch to a crowd in springfield virginia today. >> romney: food prices are up, electricity prices are up. these are tough times for the american people. and the answer to help the american people is to get small business growing again. hiring people again raising wages again. i know how to do it. >> eliot: if you believe that mother jones which put out the now infamous romney donors video wants you to see this video making a pitch for bain capital in 1985
is disguiseds propaganda. in the parent trigger law which would close the school out right. who is in favor of parent trigger laws? and who came up with them? alec. the american ledge stiff exchange council that is the extreme right wing group that came up stand your up with the stand your ground laws. you can see where this is coming from. when you ask parents about it, they're savvier than the average bear. listen to this mom. >> that is not a solution that is a real solution that will improve students' education. my concern is that a lot of democrats are going along with it and you'll pass policies that support this. >> cenk: she's exactly right. now why do those high-level democrats go along with it? it might have something to do with the money la bow ski. rahm emmanuel got $12 million from anti-union charter school advocates. and it's all about the money. whether they're republicans or democrats that are selling out to that money. now maggie gyllenhaal, who is a real progressive, tries to defend the movie when she's talking about it. >> it's okay to find fault inside of an constitution
is this going to balance out? >> 17 states including ohio have passed restrictive voting laws. in ohio what you saw were early voting hours being reduced in democratic counties and expanded in republican counties. >> jennifer: will that cause people to not stand in line? >> i think it is going to backfire exactly. i think in 2004 what happened is that black voters stood in long lines in order to vote. in 2008 they used early voting in order to make sure their were aim to get their voting in hence the restrictions. now i think as people hear about the restrictions i think that will get people fired up. >> jennifer: i think the backfiring issue is going to play powerfully. hey, karl we have been talking about these polls and the enthusiasm. there is an interesting poll that came out from 7-eleven. customers can get their coffee in a blue cup or red cup. for the past three presidential elections they have predicted the winner. and today president obama is ahead by 16 points. should we trust 7-eleven karl? >> pardon me i'm parched governor. excuse me. [ laughter ] >> if you have
been saying voter fraud, oh, my god, now we have to pass all of the voter id laws. in pennsylvania they went to court and couldn't find a single instance of voter fraud, but now to be fair we have just found voter fraud, and guess who is doing it? the republicans. of course! of course it's the republicans! now it started in florida and has gotten much larger. we found this local report in palm beach county in florida. watch. >> a national firm has collected hundreds of thousands of a dollars from the state republican party of florida. their mission is to get out the vote for mitt romney and other republicans, but don't they are fired and the focus of a state investigation. >> there were a lot of signatures that appeared to possibly be common and there was a lot of missing information, and it just didn't appear to be real consistent. >> something was just wrong. >> yeah. >> cenk: so then it turned out, it's not just in palm beach county, it is in at least ten counties in florida. >> the workers there go through that and fine repeated problems in about 108 of the
laws. >> i think they probably will try some type of tactic like that. but there's a substantive difference between turning in a phony registration form. if he is destroying registration forms, that is a serious -- >> jennifer: and will there be an investigation? >> i think it's too early to tell florida is looking into the accusation. >> jennifer: can't be it linked to the romney campaign since he made $70,000 for this guy's services just last year? >> certainly. >> jennifer: yes. the bottom line is certainly. this is unbelievable that they would continue to go back to the well on this. lee thank you for your great reporting on this. >> thank for having >> jennifer: lee fang, who has been writing about the issue for "the nation" magazine. all right. you have to commence that comedian sarah silverman will do just about anything to ensure president obama's reelection. that's coming up. used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >>now that's politically direct. septic disaste
: this just in. judge blocks voter id law in pennsylvania. >> that's good. it will give us at least some time to try to get people indication. that's the problem we're less than six weeks out now. >> stephanie: exactly. are we very excited about our debate coverage tomorrow. >> i cannot wait. >> stephanie: i know. and then i'm going to stay there and drink, and watch the debate and taunt you. >> that's what i heard. >> you are just going to destroy the sets -- >> she is going to be a little clingy. >> stephanie: i don't get to see her in person very often, so i'm like a kowala. she'll have to pry me off of her. >> i don't know if you tune in to "the young turks" in the afternoon, but she does a lot of twitter stuff. >> stephanie: and you guys are like the a-team. we're not even prime time. we'll be like little match girls -- and then the a-team will do post debate coverage. >> yes. it is past my bedtime but i'll be forced to attend. >> stephanie: everybody is doing it from new york. >> the big guys. stepchildren are here in l.a. >> stephanie: yeah, we're going to be drinki
're talking about can't make decisions about what treatments are given. that's prohibited in the law. but let's go back to what governor romney indicated; that under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. governor what your plan does is to duplicate what is already the law, which says that, you know, if you are out of health insurance for three months then you can end up getting continuous coverage and an insurance company can't deny you if it has been under 90 days. but that's already the law, and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions. there's a reason why governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it was the largest expansion of private insurance, but what it does say is is insurers you have got to take everybody. that also means you have more customers, but when governor romney says he replace it with something, but can't detail how it will in fact be replaced -- and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts is because there isn't a better way of dealing
of on the lays side. i bring my bull whip a little bit. come on, let's go. it might be against the law but i do that too. >> a bull whip and a church fan is not unheard of. that's terrific. i know you're supporting the president. what are your thoughts on the debate this week? >> i like to find out which one of the republicans paid "saturday night live" not to come on live last night. they had a replay. i was hoping to see something more action. "saturday night live" usually brings things into perspective with a little bit better humor. >> you don't like to see a rerun of mick jagger hosting? >> no, not really. >> i would have loved to watch that. >> i want to see romney get up there, man and stop all his lying he's doing. he just lies like a rug. the man just, every other word is a lie. >> give me an example because i don't think he's on the same level of dishonesty as paul ryan. >> barack obama is robbing the. >> social security. >> medication. >> that's a lie. >> what are they planning to do social security to rob people, privatize it. they need to say hey we need to pay that money back to t
walton, founded wal-mart. their six children -- actually five children and one daughter-in-law, the six -- these six individuals in the next generation now have more wealth than the bottom 30% of the american people. >> cenk: it's a stunning fact. >> al gore: i'm sure they are good people and all of that. it's not an attack on them but it is a vivid illustration of how our country is getting so unequal. and by the way, the ability of people to go into the stores and buy things and get the economy in healthier shape is severely damaged when all of that wealth is at the top. >> jennifer: what is so interesting to me is the sense of victimization that those who are very wealthy feel about this discussion on the tax policy. and it's not an attack on them. >> eliot: martin wolf said that something that is gaining popularity in europe is a wealth tax. there is a notion that you do have a wealth tax to permit overtime -- >> cenk: i wish them a lot of luck on that. we have about twoing minutes before the debate. i want to ask you guys who do you think is going to
, things like that. what fox ignored was by law acorn had to submit all applications no matter what people put down as funny addresses and things like that. that was their huge conspiracy. now unfolding in florida this is a voter registration firm paid directly by the republican party, acorn has never been paid by the democratic party. and lo and behold, at least 11 counties are finding hundreds of bogus registration forms and fox news could not care less. >> stephanie: yep. >> flushed down. >> stephanie: this is becoming -- this is a criminal investigation. >> oh, yeah. >> stephanie: no small story right? >> yeah. it was sent over to -- the board of elections and some florida law enforcement is looking into it. the republican party was forced -- not only in florida but five states i believe -- well, this firm was hired in five states. they've been fired in florida and fired in colorado. there was. >>tube clip of one of the employees supposedly soliciting registration forms in colorado but only republican registra
not lie with a man and a woman. then you have to follow all of the laws which means execute gay guys and children who are gluttons or drunks, execute people who work on the sabbath. that's saturday, sorry nascar. execute adulters which includes people who get divorced and remarried. i don't mind being a homophobe. it is a free country. don't hide behind the bible. jesus never said an anti-gay thing in his life. romans is paul talking about romans sexual practices and it is all mistranslated from the original greek. deuteronomy is about male prost tuesday. you don't find anything about consensual relationships between same sex adults in the bible that you can use to justify homophobia. christianity is not cover for bigotry. you want to hate gay people, you're allowed to it. is a free country. don't claim you are being christian. jesus doesn't want you to judge sinners. he never said a damn thing about gay people. i can prove jesus had no problem with gay people as well but we'll do that later in the show mayb
's more important than the law. >> we've gotten into trouble with that before, haven't we? >> yeah. >> never mind the dress up like a police officer which is actually a federal crime. and pulling people over. >> stephanie: different rules. sherry in louisiana. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: hello. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: go ahead. >> caller: two comments. we have five days in louisiana to register to vote. so everybody get out and vote. >> stephanie: do it. >> caller: we've got a big uptick on independent voters. you know. that's good to hear down here in the reddest state. one more thing. wasn't it several years back they talked about this national i.d. and they said no, no, we can't do that because that's against our privacy. so why now is it okay for us to have to have this i.d.? >> because they want to do it on a state level because they can deny it point to point using governorships because once -- the problem is state constitutions can act -- that's why when they talk about state's rig
. how is that possible? >> bobby kennedy, law professor by the way bobby kennedy and i did an investigation for "rolling stone." i was also at bbc television. we went through the raw data of the elections assistance commission. it is amazing what you can see when you're look and in the last election 2.7 million votes ballots were cast and never counted. now, these are glitches. they have the wrong envelopes but you'll love this one governor. if you are african-american, the chance your ballot will not get counted, they call it spoiled is 900% higher than if you're a white voter. 500% higher than if you're a latino voter than a white voter. plus 3.2 million voters were wiped off the voter rolls in the last election. this time, it will be worse and how does this happen? how come black voters have a tough time getting their ballots counted? how come they get wiped off the voter rolls. >> jennifer: what's the deal? what's going on? >> two things. data trust and teamous. it is a giant data mining operation that
suppression laws are going on. we're out here fighting for him. >> bill: voter suppression. never mentioned that. >> caller: i.d. laws. we're fighting on the ground for him and he comes not ready to play. he should have said a b c d. where was the boxing going on? >> bill: you know, he knows his stuff. you know he knows this stuff. you know he was frustrated last night. i don't know why he didn't -- maybe he felt he couldn't engage but you know, i thought he had to. we wanted him to. >> caller: he was campaigning too much. maybe he needed three days to lay down and relax. maybe he's been doing too much. >> bill: i don't know. but they spent two days in henderson, nevada with john kerry preparing for this debate. i guess -- as i said before the break, maybe hiring john kerry as his debate coach was the first mistake. lee in los angeles. what do you say? >> caller: hi, bill press. i've been with you here in california. >> bill: we had some good days out there lee. >> caller: we did. you know what, bill? i did
the abortion rate there is an effective way to do it without changing the law. you can see it in our number of the day 61% that's how much birth rate fell when birth control was given away for free. this came out of a study by washington university, 9,000 women, many of whom were poor and uninsured were offered contraceptives without cost. most got iuds or other implants which are the most effective option and usually quite expensive. but the drop in pregnancy more than made up in the expense. that is good news. we may soon see similar results across the country. the president's affordable care act gives access to contraceptive. if you're anti-abortion, stand up for obama-care. >> eliot: coming up, was wednesday night the best etch-a-sketch yet? but first people have been clamoring for t and now it's here. the musical mash up. when it doesn't fit anywhere else, we put it in the viewfinder.

got a boost today when a pennsylvania judge delayed implementing the state's voter i.d. law until after the november election. in denver, romney tried to improve his chances with hispanic voters say he would keep in place the president's executive order allowing undocumented immigrants brought to the u.s. as children to get temporary visas. meanwhile, the ad wars continue. karl rove's super pac will reportedly spend $11 million over the next week to broadcast this ad in eight swing >> this is what president obama said the jobless rate would be if we pass the stimulus. 5.6%. but this is what the jobless rate actually is. 8.1%. the difference? about 3.7 million jobs. >> eliot: the obama campaign has a new ad of its own attacking romney's record on outsourcing at bain capital. >> a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment. even knowing that the firm promoted its practi
own healthcare law which he never actually repudiated but which he sort of backed away from during the republican primary and as you recall, it was a big topic in the republican primary debates being attacked from the right. rick santorum was particularly effective at sort of prosecuting that right wing case against the mandate. but now we have romney saying things like the healthcare law that he passed in massachusetts demonstrates his compassion. and the right screams every time he says something like that. but it will be very interesting if he -- to see if he takes the debate as an opportunity to actually make a closer embrace of the healthcare. >> eliot: molly you're exactly right. he was for it before he was against it. dey, he finds behind this faux federalism. a state should pass it not the federal government which misses the question about whether this it is logical as a matter of healthcare policy. how does he square the circle? >> i have no idea. i don't know how he's going to have the debate tomorr
against any esteemed laws outlawing people because of their religious political, social or economic ideas. i'm against it because it's a violation of the constitution of the united states and bill of rights and clearly so. >> jennifer: something about that language that is fantastic. how important were the debates prior to the television era? >> well, it is a great question. it was one where you played the lincoln/douglas debates. we all talk about that. really from 1858 1960, john f. kennedy versus richard nixon, debates didn't play that big a role in presidential campaigns. there were no presidential debates. but you did have in primaries occasionally, squareoffs going on. interesting to even think about stats from minnesota rarely run for president -- stacken ran for president every four years. kennedy/nixon was the game changer in debate history. people that listened to it thought nixon won on radio but on television, john f. kennedy won. nobody was that happy with the debates. we had no debates in '64 '68 '72
